A baby shower! For me!

Simcha Fisher - published on 01/14/15

Ideally, I’d love to meet all of you in person, offer you some sheet cake covered with pink, Crisco-flavored icing rosebuds, make you play humiliating games involving the sniffing of diapers, and then you give me presents. Doesn’t that sound nice?

But since I am here and you are there, the lovely and intrepid Rebecca Frech is hosting a vitual baby shower for me over at Shoved to Them.

Is it a Texas thing to have alcohol at baby showers? Because she’s got alcohol (or a recipe, anyway).

And she’s got a game which doesn’t require you to sniff anything, and which will actually be really helpful to me. Also at the post is the video debut of Little Miss Unborn Fisher 2015. If you have a moment, stop in and sign the guest book!

And, yikes, this is awkward, but free lancers don’t get maternity leave, so if you have a few dollars to spare, a contribution would be most welcome (Rebecca includes a PayPal link, or you could use the one on my right sidebar). Oddly enough, being pregnant with baby #10 when you are forty years old is not as easy as it sounds; and because not even Catholics want to spend good money to watch a walrus-shaped woman standing behind a podium and crying, I made the prudential decision to cancel some speaking engagements that I had been counting on for income in 2015. So a PayPal’d baby gift will go a long way to helping us through while I give birth and recover. My hope is to keep blogging pictures while I’m on maternity leave, so as not to leave this space languishing.

Thanks for considering it! And do check out Rebecca’s blog, even if you can’t or don’t feel like throwing a few bucks my way.
